What happened to fod2 or fttpod2?


[link to this post]
 
I know this was an expensive product in most cases, but I thought it was to be available to order on all fttc exchanges at some point this year?

Is this still the case or has it been canned?

It's still well expensive! I don't think many isp's are offering FTTPoD 2 because BT are likely to go ahead with new service g.fast next summer 2017.

As for g.fast it would benefits to those who are much closer to the fibre cabinet (approx below 150m away) anything over 150m will be useless on g.fast.

Not true, the benefits will extend much further than that, possibly 100Mbps at 500m.

As others have said the FoD2 service is still being trialled, however the connectorised 'plug and play' FTTP drop cables are now being adopted by some of the native Openreach FTTP builds.
